the inventiveness of her work through the rich and strange resources of English itself. ‘Rich and strange’ is Shakespeare’s phrase, in The Tempest (Act 1, scene 2), for the ‘sea-change’ that happens to the bones of the dead; Cixous, as we will see, does rich and strange things with the language of Shakespeare, as well as with the bones of the dead. 4 This book attempts to do something new, namely to provide readers with a way into Cixous’s work that does not presuppose an extensive familiarity with feminist theory, deconstruction or psychoanalysis. It aspires to

the 1970s has been remarkable for the wide range of positions that exist within it. Debates and disagreements have centred on three particular areas, these being: 1. the role of theory; 2. the nature of language; and 3. the value or otherwise of psychoanalysis. The next three sections will look at each of these in turn. Feminist criticism and the role of theory A major division within feminist criticism has concerned disagreements about the amount and type of theory that should feature in it. What is usually called the ‘Anglo-American’ version of feminism has

emerging woman subject in philosophy and psychoanalysis, and hints at the new avenues of thought which are opened up for women and men when the implications of female subjectivity are taken seriously. Forever Fluid presents an invitation to us as authors and to you our readers to move into uncharted territory without clear disciplinary demarcations, to discover what happens when female subjects are treated with the same consideration as male subjects have been. The recognition of a female subject is relatively recent in Western philosophy Through Western intellectual

York: Norton, 2007), pp. 696, 693, 697 respectively. For Lacan, of course, the whole register of the ‘imaginary realm’ is characterized by the visual, even if ultimately it is structured by the symbolic realm. The imaginary is the seen yet unseen. 10 Dylan Evans, An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis (London: Routledge, 1996), p. 142. 11 Lacan, Écrits , p. 696, emphasis added. 12 Lacan, Écrits , p

and contemporary construction of the field. Little work has been done in printmaking related to semiotics, feminism, or psychoanalysis. This paper is a call for a new history and historiography of printmaking and, more than anything, is a call for dialogue that would examine the ways in which printmaking relates to the important theoretical issues of our time. Re-visioning a

. 3 Although fiercely divided amongst themselves in terms of ‘luttes des classes’ and ‘luttes des femmes’, three strong currents of feminism emerged: awareness-raising in the tradition of the suffragettes, feminists who looked to psychoanalysis (Psych et Po), and radical feminists who advocated separatism and militant action. The female body transcended these divisions and acted as a shared ‘corpus’ which crossed class, politics and ideology (if not always religion) and created a unifying tendency not only amongst feminists, but also non

Popularising psychoanalysis, 1945–68
Richard Bates

If the interwar years were when psychoanalysis began to occupy a central place in western intellectual and popular culture, it was in the postwar decades that this centrality translated into significant impacts on ordinary lives and public policy. Historians of psychological thinking argue that the postwar period crystallised the shift away from the ‘Victorian culture of character’ in Western Europe and North America, towards the ‘permissiveness’ of the later twentieth century. 1 After 1945, there was

Dolto and the psychoanalytic approach to autism in France
Richard Bates

widely used textbook, Child Psychiatry (1935), initially suggested that autism was inborn, but later argued for a psychogenic aetiology. 15 His ambiguity here may well have been strategic, in view of the increasing prevalence of psychoanalysis in American psychiatry and in American culture more generally between approximately 1945 and 1963. 16 In this period psychoanalysts were extending their insights to areas of medicine and psychiatry such as asthma and schizophrenia. Their explanations frequently led back to

This chapter strikes out on a pathway of charting how Freud considered memory, as one of the processes working through the subject, and I will do so through a specific ‘case-history’. Although Freud thought psychoanalysis was in the pursuit of truth, the speculative nature of his writing, and the different, irreconcilable models of thought, set side by side alongside each
